Fodor's Review

An atmospheric beer garden, live music, and good-value pub-style meals are the main draws at this refurbed colonial-era hotel. The hotel also has a large public bar, a lounge bar, a gaming room, and a bottleshop. Classic Aussie meals, served indoors or alfresco, are more about quantity than innovation, but service is prompt and friendly, and good-value daily specials come with a beer or glass of house wine. The building, circa 1888, is worth a visit in itself: with a beautiful bull-nose veranda and original iron-lace work, it's a classic example of Townsville colonial architecture.
